Tips & Trends | Designer Swap’s Newest (and most giftable) Handbags

Ah, the handbag: also known as a girl’s best friend, in my humble opinion. Who can afford diamonds, am I right? Which is why we gravitate towards beautiful purses that hold everything we need (and a lot of things we don’t). In this post, I’m going to introduce you to some truly majestic purses currently available on Designer Swap, at every price range. Snag these luxury handbags for yourself, or for one of your gal pals this holiday season. Happy shopping!

LOW: Chester Street Kacy Leather Backpack, Kate Spade

Kate Spade | Chester Street Kacy Leather Backpack

Fashion meets function with a pebbled leather bag. Gold hardware? Check. Roomy pockets for all the necessities? Check. Adjustable shoulder straps? Check. Give this timeless style to your girl-on-the-go.

MEDIUM: Monogram Canvas Popincourt Shoulder Bag. Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton | Monogram Canvas Popincourt Shoulder Bag

The boujee fashionista in all of us loves a good Louis Vuitton. However, few of us can afford one. Skip the $1800 LV duffel and opt for this pre-loved piece, complete with handy compartments and the timeless leather print. Your wallet will thank you!

HIGH: Medium Drew Shoulder Bag, Chloe

I am obsessed with this purse, and I wish I could buy it myself. But because it is the holiday season, I thought I would do a good deed and bring it to your attention! With a mix of leather and suede panels and gold hardware, this messenger style silhouette screams “Paris it-girl.”

REALLY HIGH: Birkin Clemence 35 Bag, Hermes Paris

Okay, so very few people have this kind of money to spend on a bag. But a girl can dream, right? If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would buy the mother of all handbags: the Birkin Bag. And to save myself a pretty penny, I would buy it from Designer Swap. I could gush about this mustard-coloured beauty all day long, but I think the name speaks for itself.
